I'm no authority but if someone wants to make a push for SCP in
upstream I think it would be wise to strip the patch down a bit,
initially only add SCTP, so remove the multiple listen bits.
Since the patch introduces a new transport concept tied to the socket
protocol maybe it also makes sense to store the protocol (IPPROTO_*)
in the options.
Then the -z option handling is inconsistent in the patch and also its
existence is conditional on build-time detection, which isn't great.
I think Mike's idea in one bug is the right way to go; programs always
understand the option but error out if the protocol isn't supported.
Also, the patch doesn't add -z to all programs; in particular not to sftp.
Finally, I suppose that the configure detection and
are way too simplistic for the many platforms supported by OpenSSH-portable.
So someone would need to put a bit of work in...
